Just checked my car's MOT history online, it's only done 1100 miles since last year.

These were the advisories... a load of expense at some point in future no doubt.

I like not having to worry about any of that

To be fair, I do keep thinking about getting a car, just a small fun weekend type car, but it's way down on my priorities. Sorting out my flat comes first

You take the car to preschool when it's only two minutes away? WALK!

No I get the bus! The journey from the bus stop to the stop outside preschool is 2 mins, but the bus stop is a 10 mins walk from our house, so to walk from house to school would take 25 mins. I walk home from drop off though. Next year Ill have to drive though because felix will be at school and Monty will be at preschool and I wont have time to walk between the two.

Nah, simple stuff.

The sills - give them a clean and treat with rust killer. Then some etch primer and then a coat of hammerite or similar. Will keep them good for another two to three years easily for about 30 all in.

Only other thing which would bother me is the tyre - if it wears to the point of needing changed, get them to check the alignment.

You don't do enough miles to make the rest an issue for a good few years yet. You're looking at about 100 to fix them all though.

I'm not happy about the tyre being worn because they're nearly new (I mean they're a few years old but hardly any miles). The car doesn't pull to the side either. I bet it's one of the potholes which infest our roads, I drove into one which made me cringe a while back, which I missed seeing. (I mean the pothole has fucked the alignment up, not that it wore the tyre.)

Anyway yes if those things are all that's wrong with the car then I haven't got any major worries. I don't mind shelling out a few hundred a year on repairs if I have to, it's cheaper than getting another car plus Pumas are getting rarer so maybe mine will appreciate as time goes on.

I went over a pothole the other month coming out of a car park and because my car is low, it caught the inner fender splashguard and ripped it out along with the wheelarch trim. Luckily all that stuff is plastic and the wheel and paint were fine.

Still cost about 200 quid in parts though. Annoying thing though is because I fixed it myself (even though I bought the replacement bits), I can't provide an invoice from a garage for the work

They have a statutory defence anyway that if the pothole hasn't been reported, they aren't liable
